MAC4: Trading out of the first round

I know someone might say what are you crazy or say that's stupid. But hear me out on this one. To trade out of the first round would mean that two of the top three QBs have been drafted in the top ten picks and one falls and Cleveland is not one of those teams that drafts a QB in the top 10 picks. Of the top 10 picks you can argue that Houston, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland and Minnesota are all looking for a QB and after that no one else is willing to draft a QB in the first round unless you include Tennessee. That being said one of these guys might fall to the late round all the way to us. Now we don't need a QB or at least in the first round, so why not trade with one of those teams that passed up on one of those guys and grab a minimum of three draft picks. This makes sense to me because Cleveland will not draft a QB with the their first pick but instead with their second first round pick. Why do I believe this? It's because there is to much talent in the front half of the first round than the second half. By trading away the 22nd pick to Jacksonville, Houston or Oakland would put us in a nice spot in the second round and in the other picks as well. By looking at our team how many players starting are former first founders. Just one and that's Lane Johnson from last year. With this draft being as deep as it is with certain positions it is crucial that we have as many picks in this draft to not only lay the foundation of an new Eagles team that can possibly hold together a multiple Super Bowl team of young players. Leaving us with with a group of guys that made the team knowing what to expect in their second year which would allow us to target top tier free agents and whell and deal in next year draft to get anyone we want. I truly believe that this draft will lay the foundation of our multiple super bowl team, so we can not mess up in this draft. Do you agree?
